Bonnaroo Announces “Concerts on the Farm” with Billy Strings, Jon Pardi and The Avett Brothers
Music fans hungry for the return of Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in September can get a little taste of the beloved festival at Concerts on the Farm, a new socially distanced live-music series set to launch on May 28 with newly minted Grammy winner Billy Strings.
Strings, whose album Home won a Grammy for “Best Bluegrass Album,” will headline “An Evening with Billy Strings” on the hallowed festival grounds at Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN. The outdoor series will continue on May 29 featuring country music star Jon Pardi with guest Jameson Rodgers. Indie/folk/rock giants The Avett Brothers will play three shows over July 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
The limited capacity concerts will keep safety in mind considering the Covid-19 pandemic is far from over. The events will operate under social distancing guidelines with tickets sold in groups of four giving fans an 8′ x 8′ “pod” six feet from other pods. Masks will be required when not in designated pods where fans can bring their own chairs and blankets. Food and beverages can also be delivered via mobile ordering.
Bonnaroo was forced to cancel its 2020 incarnation of the long-running and popular festival due to the pandemic. It was rescheduled for June of 2021 and put off again in an abundance of caution until September 2nd through September 5th 2021.
Tickets to the Concerts on the Farm series go on sale Friday, March 19th, at 10:00 a.m. CT. For more information, click on the links below.
